Claire Lane, Urban Conservationist
For the past year, the SWCD has been working to establish and gain support for a Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA). We are proud to announce that the Hamilton County Invasives Partnership (HIP) is launching this spring. While launch events including the state CISMA conference, spring sustainability invasives workshop, and Weed Wrangles are facing postponements and changes in the face of COVID-19, we are working to shift to webinar and online education as we launch this effort.
HIP is an open group of county landowners and property managers, municipality and parks representatives, conservation organizations, and more and WE WANT YOU. A variety of committees are forming surrounding education, technical assistance, volunteer coordination, and more. Anyone interested in learning more is welcome to join us at our monthly meeting—you do not have to be an expert!
More information is available on the HIP webpage where you can also sign up for the CISMA newsletter.
